    However the cost of this experience is too high for the lives of Iranians, Israelis, Palestinians, Syrians, and Lebanese. In some sense the prospect of such an attack may be positive for Iran and its allies. Asad's government is saved from falling, Iran builds internal and external legitimacy and recover the relation with Europeans. Therefore, sanctions would get easier because Iran can claim that it needs nuke to withstand Israel's agressions, Arabs get more power both by loss of legitimacy of Israel, and by higher oil price which will make dependent the bankrupted western countries even more to oil rich countries, right like what happened after crisis. Until now I have assumed that Arab public will remain quiet in this attack. However if Iran turns this attack to serial wars, then one thing which Iran can much rely on it is the cooperation of Arabs' public which have been repressed for years by their governments. I mean then Saudi king, Jordan king, or Egyptian army figures won't be able to do any thing. What Israil gets assuming these attacks are successful is that it postpones the nuclear project 2-3 years. I should say that Israelis are starting what Mullas need to survive and get more powerful. I mean they never count on nukes to kill Israel, but they much count on unifying all Islamic countries against Israel. You can easily see it in their actions and slogan. However until israel itself does not attack on Iran and prove fight and defense an obligation, Iranian technocrats themselves never let such a thing happen. The key here is how to win the support of people who just joke Mullas' anti-Israeli stands, and Israel's attack automatically handle this problem for the mullah.

Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn

Why Britain's Labour has become synonymous with anti-Semitism

When senior party members spout vile anti-Jewish theories and at the same time insist they are in no way anti-Semites, they truly believe they are not lying.

Alvy (Woody Allen) and Annie (Diane Keaton) in 'Annie Hall.'
Why is it hard to fall in love, and even harder to sustain it?

The answer can be summed up in one word, narcissism, which manifests itself in three principal ways. There are ways to overcome this love of self, however.
